Yesterday I received a stinging email.
Do you ever find yourself feeling like you are completely full of sh*t, or sometimes full of sh*t or straight up blinders-on-the-dome do-no-wrong? The whole ‘intelligent universe, people are living out where they are suppose to be’ is really crappy for many.
And the whole ‘course of miracles we signed up for this life so be happy bullsh*t’ …is bullsh*t.
There is a large population that can no longer relate to bullsh*t because life is just that real.”
I don’t know the person who wrote it, but I must say, he has a good point. Thank you.
And trust me, I’m not sitting home sucking on seeds in a loin cloth watching Super Soul Sunday.
I have plenty of personal issues, angry thoughts, total freakouts, and complete spazzes.
—Spaz. Don’t spaz.
—Exercise. Don’t exercise.
—Be positive. Be negative.
It’s when we stop making conscious choices, that life begins to suck.
The beer starts drinking you.
The envy reaches critical mass.
The anxiety approaches terminal velocity.
At that point, you feel like you are facing a much stronger enemy, who could knock you out any second by a poor month of business, or bad news from your doctor, or some tragic event.
Here’s a thought. Next time you feel like reality sucks, like you are getting hammered by life, like the “enemy” is about to win again…try this:Rear back, and with all your might…
Make an awesome choice.
Choose health: The buzz of being super healthy feels way better than the buzz of being super drunk.
Choose love: The depth of a loyal relationship is far more powerful than the thrill of a fleeting affair
Choose now: The allure of tomorrow is nothing compared to what’s happening right this second. To the critic, the enemy, whoever and whatever you call that person in your life……they are always in your head, which can only be solved by your heart.
